later in the day was owned by Dulles Aviation, Inc,. No
aircraft or people were reported in the building at the time.
Fire officials reported to InsideNOVA of VA that the cave-in did
cause a significant gas leak and has been condemned.
The hangars are among several buildings in the Northeast that
have suffered structural failures during the blizzard.
